Seems like a very nice young man as well. Don't get me wrong...if you land a kid like that (and successfully usher him to the NBA in a few years), it could easily be a gamechanger for your program but Zion likely has a bigger stage in store for him.

Could it be that Zion was just curious to see the JRIS and nothing more than that ? Also will the JRIS be enough for us to get a highly regarded player like Zion (maybe a 4 star but stars are not the whole picture. Plenty of walk-ons become stars) ?? Our recruiting has picked up some although not to his level yet. So my question is if a guy comes to visit that is a highly rated player (recruited by much bigger schools) and is close to maybe committing to be a Terrier will the JRIS make enough difference so that he will decide to be a Terrier ? Admittedly the JRIS is super nice and impressive but enough to pull a player away from a big name school ?

Jolly looks plenty smooth and skillful for a young junior. Very thin, but that can change. Seth Curry feel.

I think we're gonna see recruiting pick up with JRIS but before we start taking guys with Duke, UK, and UNC offers, I think we need to realistically look at taking kids from elite mid-major programs (think the Gonzagas, Daytons and Wichita States of the world) first. We're building this program but I think some folks might be having some unrealistic expectations.
